(Below please finds information on the NYU Data Science Fellow program.
These are very special positions for young researchers. It includes amazing
resources in a nurturing environment. We welcome applications from
visualization researchers. Best regards, Claudio.)

The Center for Data Science at New York University invites applications for
positions as Moore-Sloan Data Science Fellows. These independent research
positions are a prominent feature of the Moore-Sloan Data Science
Environment at NYU, a multi-institutional effort funded in part by a
generous grant from the Moore and Sloan Foundations. Profiles of the six
current Data Science Fellows can be found at: http://cds.nyu.edu/people/

Data Science Fellows will be expected to work at the boundaries between the
data-science methods and domain sciences. They will lead independent,
original research programs with impact in one or more scientific domains
(natural science or social science) and in one or more methodological
domains (computer science, statistics, and applied mathematics). They are
also encouraged to develop collaborations with partners at the University
of California, Berkeley, and the University of Washington.

Ideal candidates will have earned a PhD in one of these disciplines with
experience in one of the other areas (for example a PhD in statistics with
applications to physics, or a PhD in biology with extensive use of machine
learning).  Successful candidates will bring a research agenda that can
take advantage of the unique intellectual opportunities afforded by NYU,
and will have experience in working with researchers across different

Appointments will be initially for two years, with an expectation of
renewal for a third on satisfactory performance. Fellowships will be
offered competitive salary and benefits, with funds to support research and
travel.  There is flexibility about the start date, but September 1, 2016
is expected.

Fellowship applicants should send a curriculum vitae, list of publications,
and brief statement of research interests (no longer than 4 pages) to
ds-jobs-group at nyu.edu, and also arrange to have three letters of
recommendation sent, by 1 April, 2016.  The statement of research interests
should mention the names of one or more faculty members associated with the
NYU Center for Data Science who would have substantial intellectual overlap
with the applicant’s interests and likely program of research.  More
information about the Center can be found at http://cds.nyu.edu/.
